Productbeschrijving

Productbeschrijving

Climate change researchers sometimes paint a bleak picture of our
current global-warming crisis, but rarely explain how we got into this
predicament in the first place and how we get out of it. Now, for the
first time, a new book does just that.

Power Shift: From Fossil Energy to Dynamic Solar Power
retells human history through the lens of energy, explains the science
behind the crisis--in clear, succinct language that anyone can
understand--and provides a detailed blueprint for the future, from
governmental, commercial, and individual perspectives. 

Today,
we've become mired in partisan bickering among politicians and oil, gas,
and coal lobbying interests who insist that fossil fuels are necessary
for jobs and the US economy.  However, this narrow debate has failed to
notice that the world has already embarked on a transformation in how we
use energy that is so fundamental, it defines a new Solar Epoch, as
monumental as the discovery of fire, the development of agriculture, and
the exploitation of fossil fuels in previous centuries.

The
truth is that solar power--getting radically cheaper by the year--is not
only a viable solution but, as the author states, "forms a clean energy
system that can completely replace fossil fuels.  We can gradually
phase them in so that in 50 years we'll be 100% solar-powered.  And
because solar energy does not run out like fossil fuels, we will never
need to go looking for another energy source again."

The book
also explores the related crises of out-of-control CO2 emissions from
fossil fuel burning: glacial melting; flooding; drought; ocean
acidification that threatens mass extinction of marine life; and the
often overlooked costs of rising food prices and military conflicts over
oil and other fossil fuels.

Unlike other books on global warming and solar energy, Power Shift
presents visionary plans for governments, corporations, and individuals
concerned about climate change. And the author has "put his money where
his mouth is." Having built a solar home in Santa Cruz County in 1997
and outfitted it with an off-grid solar photovoltaic (PV) system,
Stayton cites numerous personal examples to inspire others to take
similar action.
 
Destined to become a classic in the field, and
soon to be adopted as a basic text in college and university
environmental studies programs, Power Shift is an indispensable
reference for researchers and global leaders, a valuable staff training
tool for solar companies, and a compelling, inspirational read for
anyone eager to learn the truth about global warming and to participate
"from the ground up" in the new Solar Epoch.

Reader-friendly with beautiful illustrations and firmly grounded in current science, Power Shift
also forges a cautionary tale of what lies ahead if we don't start
acting now: "We seem to be waiting for a sign," Stayton writes, "a
sudden event so catastrophic that it compels us to overcome political
differences and take action.  However, this disaster does not rush upon
us like a hurricane, but instead slowly erodes our foundation, like
termites.  If we wait until the house collapses, we will have waited too
long."

If you buy only one book on the topic of climate change
or solar power--for yourself, family, friends, or colleagues--you can
depend on Power Shift to serve as a comprehensive, eye-opening, educational resource for years to come.
